My 1993 900t conv. has now 55.000 miles and runs also on seperate winter tires - it now has finished (really finished!) the FIRST!!! summer tire set (195/60-15 Michelin Pilot HX). - and Iīm also concerning hard some times.... Maybee thereīs something with your wheel alignment? (or donīt drive like a lunatic?) ATTETNION: have a look at your shock absorbers (front) - they are finished often at 60.000 miles!
